- Instruction is custom-tailored to students’ needs and abilities.
- We encourage intellectual exploration, free of cultural stereotypes and unhealthy social distractions that can be inherent in coeducational dynamics.
- Girls become more involved in the classroom because they are less concerned about embarrassment or failure.
- Students are more likely to explore traditionally male-dominated areas of academics and extracurricular activities.
- Girls are challenged to put aside gender norms and step into positions of leadership.
